DVD/Blu-ray Release: 50/50

January 31, 2012

Last Tuesday, eOne Home Entertainment released the great 50/50 on Blu-ray & DVD.  A raunchy comedy about cancer that profoundly moves us with scenes of heartbreaking drama, this is a film that masterfully handles every emotion and ranks as one of the very best of last year.  We reviewed 50/50 when it opened in theatres on September 30th, all highly recommending it.  Our overall consensus was:

“With excellent leading work from Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen, and a wonderfully believable semi-autobiographical screenplay by Will Reiser, 50/50 is a funny and often deeply moving film that masterfully deals with the difficulties of having cancer without ever delving into melodrama.  **** (Out of 4)”

The Blu-ray includes commentary with Seth Rogen, director Jonathan Levine and writer Will Resier, as well as deleted scenes and two featurettes.

50/50 is 100 minutes and rated 14A.
